* Considering its [[{{Shonen}} genre]], with the exception of [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Frontier]], the Franchise/{{Digimon}} franchise subverts this trope. The parents not only play a supporting part helping their kids, they [[Anime/DigimonAdventure help develop the character]], [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 give one of the more]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming emotional aspect to the show]], [[Anime/DigimonTamers or attempt to rescue]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome their daughter from the]] BigBad.

** Ash's father ''seems'' to be alive but not around, for some vague, non-traumatic reason. As well, it seems that not only is it socially acceptable, but a ''cultural expectation'' that if a child wishes to be a Pokemon trainer, he/she has to leave their house at least at the age of ''ten'' and travel the world looking for Pokemon completely alone (unless they find unrelated traveling partners). This is mitigated somewhat by the general helpfulness of the ''Pokemon'' world's residents, and the fact that a Pokemon trainer is TheKidWithTheRemoteControl of what is potentially an incredibly powerful weapon. An early non-canon novelization states Ash's dad is a deadbeat however it has multipledifferences from anime itself. There's no concrete proof of where Ash's dad it, with his mother simply saying he's off somewhere training.

* Rinichi Sagara from ''[[Manga/KanojoNiNaruHi Kanojo Ni Naru Hi Another]] lives with his paternal uncle and insists his parents are dead; the truth isn't much prettier. Sagara's father is a ne'er do well gambler with a habit of skipping town and his mother [[TheResenter resents him for being an ever-present reminder of his loser father and for looking better than she does.]] She lost custody after a nasty incident where he accidentally pushed her down the stairs trying to escape a beating and eventually tries to sell him to human traffickers to settle the debts Sagara's Deadbeat father saddled her with.

* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'':
** Kanna was banished to Earth by her parents for pulling pranks, but at this point she probably doesn't care since [[ParentalSubstitute Kobayashi]] is a better parent than [[ParentalNeglect both of them put together]].
** Both of Ilulu's parents were killed by humans, which ended up being one of the catalysts for her {{Tragic Bigot}}ry. [[spoiler:Like Kanna, she finds a ParentalSubstitute in Kobayashi.]]

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has this running the entire length of the series. In Part One, Jonathan Joestar lost his mother when he was an infant in a carriage accident; Dio Brando, meanwhile, also lost his mother as a child, but personally killed his father for being an abusive alcoholic. Part Two has Joseph Joestar, who was raised by his grandmother ([[spoiler:his father having been killed by a vampire and his mother, Lisa Lisa, giving him up to keep him from what now looked like the family destiny, requesting Erina tell Joseph both his parents were dead]]). Jotaro in Part Three actually has both parents, but his father is a famous musician perpetually on tour. In Part Four, Josuke grew without the presence of his father (Joseph), he meets him at the start. Part Five has Giorno Giovanna, his father is Dio [[note]]whose head took over Jonathan's body[[/note]] and is estranged from his stepfather and mother. In Part Six, Jolyne had to live with his father's (Jotaro) frequent absency. Most of the series has her trying to save him. As for part Seven, Johnny's father [[TheUnFavourite shunned him]] as he [[ParentalFavoritism prefered his older brother]]. Johnny got booted out after a fight with him.

** Shikamaru's luck seems to have probably spread to his teammates. Both Chouji's and Ino's fathers are alive and shown, while in the anime, Choji's mother is briefly shown in Episode 82 of Shippuden, and Ino is shown talking to her off-screen mother in Episode 53 of Part 1 and is later shown in episode 281 of Shippudden.

** Even the bad guys are not spared. Sasori's first two puppets were made in the image of his parents, who were killed by Kakashi's dad Sakumo. This extends to the series's original BigBad, Orochimaru, whose parents died when he was fairly young; Nagato and Konan, whose parents were killed in the 2nd Shinobi World War; Obito which like Naruto never knew his parent; Kimimaro, whose father kept him in a cage for most of his life before getting himself and the rest of his clan (barring Kimimaro) killed during their war against the Hidden Mist Village; and Haku, whose father killed his mother and tried to do the same to Haku, who killed him in self-defense.

* Any resident of [[SchoolForScheming Wammy's House]] in ''Manga/DeathNote'' is an orphan. It is never stated how any of them BECAME orphans. [[note]] It's also possible that they aren't ''actually'' orphans, but rather ''[[FridgeHorror kidnapping victims]]'', given that Wammy's seems to exist only to find a new successor to L. This, however, is not confirmed. [[/note]]
